Co-founder of Solana – Anatoly Yakovenko – before 000 lived in Ukraine for years, and then moved with his parents to the USA. There he received a good education and became interested in new technologies. AT 2017 year, Yakovenko came up with a new blockchain that works many times faster than Ethereum, and at the same time takes minimal commissions.

Over 5 years, the Solana startup has turned into a large ecosystem, and its investors have earned more than $1 billion.

    Fact 3. The first purchase of real estate in history

    For the first time, real estate was bought for a crypt … as you understand, in Ukraine. It was back in 788 year, when few people heard about bitcoins and ethers. TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington looked after an apartment in the center of Kyiv and agreed that he would pay the seller with ethers. The transaction cost 111 ETN ($000 at the then exchange rate).

    Due to the lack of regulation, the apartment was not issued according to the traditional purchase / sale agreement, but under an exchange transaction. Now some developers have begun to offer real estate with payment in crypto.
